Château Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

$1039

...I do adore this Haut-Brion. The nose is heavenly with tobacco, earth, hot bricks, wild hedgerow, a touch of black olive (less than other bottles) with brilliant definition. The palate is medium-bodied, less precocious than say Latour or Mouton '82, more open-knit and accessible, quintessential Pessac that embraces that warmth of the growing season and infuses the delectable bouquet with nuances such as smoke, dried herbs, cigar box and a touch of rosemary. After an hour in the glass it is building and building. Divine. Drink now-2020+ Tasted March 2009. Neal Martin (eRobertParker.com)

Wine doesn't get much better than this. Black fruit, soft tannin, earthy notes of tobacco and leather, maybe even a touch of chocolate. Incredible.

Beautiful wine! A nose of red fruits, earth, cigar box, truffles. On the palate all that was promised was delivered, with good concentration, and amazing balance. At its prime, and a testament to the vintage, winemaker, and vineyard. Wine of the night. This made me rethink my old stance that I prefer La Mission. 97pts.
